  1. Why are they doing this? I thought this line of model kits (well barely model kits) didn't do too well? Can't they do a Master Grade 2.0 for this one & the original Wing Gundam?

    Also what is up with its hands? Shouldn't it have white hand covers?

    1. I think this is much better than a new MG. A flashy kit line for a flashy Gundam design. Hope they do a HiRM Strike Freedom too.

      Besides, there are a lot of other MSs that need updated MGs more than this one.

    2. Well seeing as how this is the 2nd model kit in the series I'm not sure where you're basing your assumptions that they haven't been doing well. I bought the Barbatos kit and it's a pretty fantastic model actually.

    4. I actually partially agree with him, however I don't thing Bandai's doing anything wrong with it. The MG Wing Zero EW is a dated MG IMO and could use an update for extra detail, articulation, and a better hand design.

      Hi-Res has also not been the most favoured line from the Gundam/Gunpla fans i've known, on the subreddit and discord, Hi-Res hasn't seen much if any love at all on where I roam, as the model kit builders were turned off by high prices, lack of customisation, and pre-built inner frame. It was a really niche line made for the more wealthy people who want a high-end collectable of the Barbatos, and didn't mind assembling a bit for it.

      Still, I wonder if Bandai's giving this line another shot, and i'm curious to see how this kit will turn out.

    5. What do you mean didn't do well? Did you think expensive item like Hi-Res can be produced and buyed casually like HG?

      Just treat Hi-Res model as premium or collector kit. Hi-Res target is for they who have more money to spend, and want have someting like metal build but at the same time want to assemble it which metal build don't have.

    6. Thing is, most people from the communities I know don't own or even plan to get the Hi-Res, and some downright despise the concept. People have said that they'd rather buy PG's at their price, and that's exactly what they do, I have seen the Hi-Res get posted only once or twice in these communities because of how unpopular it is between Gunpla fans, just like you say, it's for the community who wants a Metal Build that's assembled, but that very same community is very niche in general. Most people I know either want one of the other, and not both, if you're see as much of the r/Gundam discord and subreddits as I am, you'll see what I mean. Most people do not praise the line, and some people I know downright detest it, saying that it shouldn't exist.

      Do not mistake me for one of these guys. I want Hi-Res in the future when I am able to afford things myself, but from personal experiences with the hobby and the communities of them, it is very evident that Hi-Res is very unpopular, even for the wealthy side of the Gunpla builders, as well as the Metal Build collectors, because most people would rather buy one or the other.

    1. It's not canceled, or else we wouldn't be getting teasers. It's likely going to be shown at the Shizuoka Hobby Show.
